Re: Consultancy

Messy - on the button on being self employed, it suits some and not others,
For my quick input, doing it as a side line may not do you, the client or current role justice.

Re: Compliance

Have to agree with Bernicarey comment ------ to stay .. clear of the large national coverage consultancy companies as there is an element of hard sell with some of them, combined with supply of stock materials that may well be of no use to you and your business. Having a check list isn't much good t...

Re: RAs, procedures and Elec vehicles

True enough. I was thinking of a dedicated fleet with it's own charging facilities at company locations. I guess you're thinking of more public locations. Good discussion point, though I don't see waiting for charging as being an H&S issue. As to being caught in jams, if it ain't moving, it shouldn...

Re: RAs, procedures and Elec vehicles

Thanks Bernicarey - some to the things additional or different to our typical vehicle I've encountered and heard about are - getting to a charging site and having to wait in turn to get charged causing extended work times (by several hours in some instances), 3 hrs by ICE may be 5-6 if charging does...

RAs, procedures and Elec vehicles

with such a surge of media on the benefits of adopting electro vehicles (perhaps even some hybrids), I/m looking to see what and how companies have adapted their occupational road risks to accommodate this type of vehicle - probably more about dealing with the journey being more than the charge capa...

Re: Food safety

In addition to Bernicarey's suggestion on an infra-red check, have you looked at the journey from the local supermarket to your premises and whether the food will realistically maintain its temp for the journey. Is it in freezer/cool bags or pitched into the back of a van that also calls into the ca...

Re: Site inspection during interview

Talk aloud whilst you're walking around, not gibber but gently and briefly highlight what you are looking at - the good and not so good. Not fine detail butt it shows what you are looking at, what you are expecting etc. Thats something you can practice before the interview. If you are writing notes ...

Re: Comprehending prosecutions and fines.

Again, its not about the prosecution or it merits, its about the pointlessness of fining a council. It doesnt acheieve anything other than hurting the people who are ment to benefit from the council. I can agree in, part, had his been he first or even second occasion. The court has no power to make...

Re: Comprehending prosecutions and fines.

The council is no different to any other entity such a sole trader, LLP or limited company Well they are, they are publicly funded. The point of a fine is to disuade people from breaking the law. If you are not affected by the fine them it serves no useful purpose and the only result is the public ...

Re: Comprehending prosecutions and fines.

The council is no different to any other entity such a sole trader, LLP or limited company. They hold legal responsibilities and know that if they are prosecuted, they will be penalised. That their funds come from taxes etc, in some ways places an even higher burden on those running the organisation...

Re: Risk Assessment - Workshop

Rather like Stephen1974, I used to do training on vehicle defects and used to check high profile No1 supermarket vehicles. Almost always assured they were in tip top condition. The outcome being, that if the vehicle didn't look like the supermarket one, then something was probably not right and need...

Re: First Aid - Employee Refusal To Go To Hospital

Have an issue with any manager having the authority to send an employee to hospital. Its almost the same as an employer saying an injured employee couldn't go to hospital. It would be less oppressive to use the other options as above. And even the doctors letter to say they are fit for work - if the...
